By BBN Staff: The Belize Tourism Board (BTB) has won the prestigious Innovation & Creativity Award of the Latin American Travel Association (LATA) based in London, United Kingdom for its Belize Virtual Expo – the first of its kind in the country.
The award was presented yesterday at the Experience Latin America (ELA) trade show which took place in London from June 12-14 and organized by LATA.
“Belize is a growing, viable and a must-go destination in the Caribbean and Latin American Travel Market. This award is a testament of how the BTB is ensuring that Belize is promoted effectively with great innovation and creativity to the European market and beyond,” Karen Pike, BTB’s Director of Marketing and Industry Relations, said.
The award was granted to the BTB for its Belize Virtual Expo, which will be held at the Biltmore Plaza Hotel from June 29-30, 2017.
The Virtual Expo aims to give local tourism service providers an opportunity to meet “virtually” with key representatives of the international travel trade.
